This 60 minute Kakadu Scenic Flight will take you over Jim Jim and Twin Falls in the wet season when that area is inaccessible by road.
The flight over Kakadu National Park heads south, passing the Ranger Uranium Mine, across Mt Brockman and along the escarpment to “Lightning Dreaming”. After crossing Deaf Adder Gorge, we take in the beautiful Double Falls, a spectacular introduction to the waterfalls of Kakadu National Park.
Continuing south, we fly across the Arnhem Plateau until it drops away revealing the breathtaking Jim Jim Falls. We then fly on to Twin Falls, with its two distinctive flows and narrow gorge entrance.
This package allows you to experience all Kakadu’s main attractions from the air at a competitive price.
Our popular 30 minute Kakadu Scenic Flight will fly over Ancient escarpments, winding rivers, spectacular 1.8 billion years of continuous erosion, billabongs and flood plains. View the Archway, Arnhem Land Escarpment’s, Dinosaur Valley, East Alligator River & Valley, Mikinj Valley Billabongs and the magnificent Magela Wetlands.
Note: The 30 minute Kakadu Scenic Flight operates over the Northern part of Kakadu bordering Arnhem Land.
This flight departs from Jabiru Airport which is only a short drive (approx. 10 mins) from the town of Jabiru.
If you feel the 30 minutes is not long enough you may want to consider the 1 hour Kakadu Scenic Flight.
You cannot find a more inclusive scenic flight in the entire NT. The Super Scenic includes everything you can possibly see in Kakadu National Park and surrounds packed into a 1 hour and 45 minute flight.
This scenic flight is customisable to your liking but generally includes popular sites such as Lightning Dreaming, Nourlangie Rock, Ubirr Rock, Cahill’s Crossing and Dinosaur valley.
As the flight continues outward from Jabiru you have a great opportunity to see wildlife on the wetlands and throughout the South and East Alligator River.
If you’d like to see a specific site or spend more time in one area than another, be sure to speak with our friendly Operations team or have a chat with your pilot before the flight!
